    I've had some problems with the RealTek audio drivers. The Microsoft ones seem to be less problematic, but you will need to figure out how to prevent the RealTek ones from self-reinstalling every day...

    Try the latest as it seems to be ok on FHD panels, if it flickers drop back to the older one 1.2.0

    Bios is nothing to do with the operating system so it will stay.

    Awesome! I got Firestrike score 4399!
    On your guide it said that I should use NVIDIA Inspector. I felt that with MSI Afterburner you dont have to task schedule it. How does it differ from MSI Afterburner which starts up as soon as you turn your computer? Also do I need Throttlestop window open for it to work?

    Throttlestop should stay running. Keep it in your tray. It's a good app anyway because it's low on resources and it's handy to check temps.

    I don't like using MSI afterburner because it behaves erratically with optimus. Sometimes it won't set the clocks, othertimes, when you check the app, it will have set the sliders to "32767", which, though I have doubts as to whether they'd actually be applied, make me concerned. I have also suffered 2 dead BGM GPUs while using afterburner. I can't be sure that it was afterburner that did it, but it was enough to make me stay away from it.

    Intel AC8260 is fitted to some models. It is only a twin antenna so you have to tape the 3rd out the way.

    Anyone having trouble with the Win 10 Anniversary update? Trying to figure out if it is my 9550 or just another general 9550 issue.

    Whats your problem(s)?

    Fine here so far. I did a clean install as I had a few issues with the fast ring updates coming thick and fast during the run up to the 2nd.
